Microchip Technology Inc. announced the new MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit for 3D gesturing systems. The kit provides designers with an easy, step-by-step approach to develop 3D gesturing systems with the company’s MGC3130 – a single-chip 3D gesture/free space position tracking solution -- and electrodes that meet their specific space requirements. The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit is a complete MGC3130 reference system, consisting of a MGC3130 Module and one example reference electrode. With several additional reference electrode designs, the Aurea Graphical User Interface Software, and an I2C to USB Bridge Module, this development kit is said to enable an easy design-in of the MGC3130 into several different form factors. The GestIC Technology enabled with the MGC3130 serves a wide range of applications in the computing (e.g., laptops, keyboards, input devices); lighting (e.g., lighting switches and controls); consumer-electronic (e.g., audio docks, printers and copiers); and automotive markets (e.g., automotive interior controls), among others.
